Reminders that it's not all bad...Some NSV's
I've been MIA because life has been crazy, hectic and pretty horrid all around. Not surprising considering I'm creeping up on 1 year of being unemployed without any hope of it ending any time soon. We've also been helping friends with a flood cr... Read more
New progress pictures and back from the dead...
Well, first I'm back from the dead. Well, not really the dead, more like the land of the extremely busy. The last several weeks have been hectic and emotionally draining to the point where I was being very lax with myself. Between appointments, ... Read more
NSV: Thank you CardioCoach/Sean O'Malley!!!
I started using CardioCoach about little over a month ago at the gym. When I started out, my 'warm-up' speed was about 2.5MPH, my 'steady' speed was about 2.8MPH and my 'level 3' speed was between 4.3 and 4.7MPH.
I've made definite increase... Read more

Gains and losses...
So first, sadly my visit to Two-Ville was extremely short-lived. I'm not sure if it was the scale, if I was right on the edge between 300 and 299.9, or what - but my weight is back up. I guess on the plus side it's only the second real 'gain' I'... Read more
Goals, milestones and pushing the limits...
I'M IN TWOVILLE! I was finally able to weigh-in at the Y and my current weight is 299! I'm just beyond excited. Even better, I managed to hit that number BEFORE my June 30th deadline. I'm loving it!
It also means that I've re... Read more
Good Day = New Running shoes + Y Membership??
Not long ago (let's say 6 months) a 'good day' for me would've involved a visit to the movies, a large meal (or two!) at a restaurant (possibly fast food), and possibly a leisurely stroll through the mall, even though most stores didn't care clo... Read more
A learning process...
Just like any long journey, the one towards better health and weighing less is also an on-going learning experience. Everyone starts off the journey with a strong set of beliefs; even the casual fad dieter is gung-ho in believing that this mirac... Read more
Visible changes ...? Maybe...
So, today was a bit of a landmark day. I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was able to go into WalMart and fit into some clothing. Well, at the time things were still a tad tight and I of course couldn't buy anything.
Well today, Ray and ... Read more
That felt good...
After about a week and a half, I was finally able to work out again tonight. I didn't get the walking in that I'd wanted, but I still got all my minutes (cardio and strenght) in.
Tonight's workout was:

Back and ready to get going again...
So, I survived the cold that knocked me on my rump last week, though I do have my battle scars to deal with. Thanks to the cold I've got a deep, hacking cough that's still lingering, along with some head congestion. Under different circumstances... Read more
Somewhere along the way I picked up a nasty cold bug last week. Not sure if it was at Aquatica (water park) or while we were at DSC (college), but I'd really love to return it, thank you. It all started innocuously as a tickle in my throat and a... Read more
It's the little things...
That make this hard journey worth it. :)
- Finding out I not only did 40 minutes of exercise MORE than required last week, but I beat out most of the other Boot Camp participants. YAY!
- Doing the Spark People Boot Camp Day 1 Kick boxi... Read more
Changes over time
So the boot camp I've joined requires participants to take their starting measurements. I was going to skip it, but on a whim I decided to pick up a tape measure. I remembered that back in December I signed up for a website that had me input my ... Read more
On perceived 'failures' and restarting....
Several events this weekend got me thinking about this life-changing journey many of us have chosen to embark upon. Deciding to live a healthy lifestyle that includes fitness and proper eating is a huge decision and a long road pitted with many,... Read more
